FISHNETS: DOS AND DON’TS

 

Tom Ford brought sexy back JT style this season with fishnet tights, so we thought we would share some of our wisdom with you so there are no excuses for any Avril circa 2002 fishnet faux pas…You’re welcome.

DO…

> Trust the designers- they know what they’re talking about. Tom Ford wasn’t the main man behind the Gucci turnaround in the late ‘90s for no reason; he knows how to style a woman. Have faith!

fishnet

> Have confidence in yourself, not just the designer. The most awkward thing to see is someone feeling uncomfortable. If you don’t feel yourself- don’t wear them!

> Less is more, remember? Why not wear fishnets underneath your trouser suit at the office with a pair of heels if you want to feel more confident but aren’t quite willing to show the whole leg.

> Try a pencil skirt with some leather boots, so your knee is the only bit of fishnet flesh on show.

> Dress yourself down in other areas:

>>For work & daytime: light lipstick, minimal make up, a pencil skirt and a blouse

>>For evenings- minimal make up – just because it’s dark doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to slap on the red lippy(!) – a tight midi skirt with a pair of boots and a light cropped jacket, or a plain coloured jersey dress.

> Wear sheer bare look tights underneath the fishnets if you want to keep warm this season. Try Falke Shelina Tights for this look, with several options to match your skin tone!

 

 

DON’T…

honeycomb-tights-main_1_2

> Deliberate in buying fishnets with holes in them. Unless you’re going to a fancy dress party. Even then I wouldn’t advise it.

> Wear stilettos or sky high heels- instead try a casual boot or a wedged boot.

> Do a Rihanna/Miley Cyrus and wear fishnet and NOTHING else. You won’t pull it off and you may be arrested.

> Overestimate your coolness, bright tights underneath green fishnets don’t work for everyone, so don’t assume you’re suddenly Taylor Momsen because you’ve purchased a pair of quirky tights. Black or nude is the safest choice of colour.

> Feel like you have to convert overnight- there are plenty of options if you want to be subtle but part of the fishnet craze this autumn.Try the Charnos Honey comb fishnets- with a matte finish; these tights hold a subtle honeycomb design that decorates legs whilst giving you a comfortable and warm feel- perfect all year round!

> Think that wearing a low cut top; a mini skirt and fishnets is in fashion, it’s not. Keep it classy.

Top 3 Lady Gaga Hosiery Looks

Lady Gaga Patterned TightsWhether she’s wearing a meat dress or styling her hair as a button (yes really), Lady Gaga is certainly renowned for her eclectic taste. But did you know that she’s an avid hosiery wearer, constantly snapped in a selection of terrific tights? We’ve included here a list of her top 3 hosiery looks. Now whether you choose to match them with a dress made of bubbles à la Gaga is up to you!

1. Fishnets

Seen recently on the David Letterman with a leather jacket, black knickers, a black diamanté bra and brown fishnet tights, Lady Gaga emulated Madonna by wearing her underwear over her fishnet tights. Another time, inspired by that glamorous 20’s style, the Do What U Want singer teamed a girly lace blouse decorated with pearls, cream frilly pearl-adorned shorts along with nude fishnet tights. Lady Gaga was also snapped in a pair of black fishnets teamed with a spiky leather jacket and, well, black knickers, proving that this diva has a serious addiction to fishnets! Both times the Alejandro hitmaker showed off the sheer brief style of fishnets, showing off the fact that no matter how high your hemlines go, fishnets will never let you down by showing off reinforced material. To emulate Lady G’s sexy style we recommend the Levante Fishnet Tights, available in black, brown and nude styles.

2. Suspenders

Wearing a matching latex hat, bodysuit, and over knee boots, with a lace fan (why not?) and suspenders (yes, just suspenders and no stockings!) for a modern take on a classic look. For this saucy look in an instant why not match the Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights with a pair of knee high boots and some black city shorts (perhaps cotton is tad more practical than latex)! These 40/20 denier suspender tights have actually been spotted on Jessie J and Frankie from the Saturdays, too.

3. Patterned Tights

With marine blue hair, leopard-print platforms, a black lacy bra and a black and indigo blue jacket, Lady Gaga was on top form again when she was photographed in a pair of detailed fashion tights. For fun patterned tights that will make an impact like the Poker Face starlet’s pair choose the Pamela Mann Comic Strip Tights. Made in 60 denier, these fashion tights are brimming with fun imagery in bright colours, funky enough to impress Mother Monster herself and at a price that won’t break the bank – what’s not to love?

Review: Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights

Reviewer Emma  pamela-mann-fishnets
Product Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights
Range N/A
Colour Chocolate
Size One size (I’m a size 10 in trousers)
Price £5.00
Colour Comments (if applicable) N/A
Appearance comments They look very small when you first put them on, but the material is extremely stretchy. You just have to keep pulling (carefully!)
Appearance Score 9/10
Feel comments The textured structure of these net tights feels great to the touch. Considering that I had to wriggle into them, I’m impressed that even after my evening chocolate binge, the flat waistband still felt really comfortable. Clearly these tights won’t give you as much protection from the elements as fleecy opaqees, but they still felt pretty warm even though I wore them on a very cold winter’s day.
Feel out of ten 10/10
Fit comments The tights were a touch on the small side but net tights do allow for more flexibility so it wasn’t a problem.
Fit out of ten 7/10
Value for Money Comments As with many nets, these fishnets are strong enough to wear again and again so you’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of them.
Value for Money out of ten 8/10
So, Does it Work? N/A
General comments Good value fishnets available in a wide range of colours.

Madonna Snaps Herself Wearing Fishnets

Trasparenze Rita Fishnet TightsCone bras, lace gloves and now fishnet tights (with little else!), Madonna has always pushed the boundaries in terms of style, cementing her position of Queen of Pop and style icon. Many however thought that she went a little too far and that a mother of four should keep her bum under wraps.

Captioned ‘Looking for Love in all the wrong places! Fear makes you focus… #rebelheart’, our favourite music diva was snapped wearing fishnet tights and (very skimpy) fetish underwear. Wearing a black hat over her long blonde curly hair, she posed in a wide zip-up belt featuring many buckles and a lacy bra.

For what it’s worth, I’m on team Madge- after all, if you’ve got it then flaunt it. Not to say that the combination of black tiny knickers with fishnet tights is really practical in British weather – even if we include the insulating properties of fishnets! However that being said, Madonna has always had her finger on the fashion pulse and so we predict that fishnets will be a big trend this season.

Now if you love fishnet tights but prefer to keep your underwear off Instagram, then we still have many different types of fishnet tights from which you can choose. For a classic pair that will drive everyone ‘Crazy For You’, turn to the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights, their sheer to waist brief means that you can wear any length of flirty hemline you desire, while their purse-friendly price won’t break the bank. If you fancy a ‘Girl Gone Wild’ style in a striking colour then turn to the Trasparenze Rita Fishnet Tights available in different sizes and colours from elegant emerald green to intriguing indigo. The Levante Micronet Tights have smaller holes  providing you with a subtle look that you’ll ‘Cherish’.

Whichever pair of fishnets you choose you can dress them up or down thanks to their versatile look. You can echo Madonna’s cheeky style and still walk down the high street without turning too many heads – simply team a pair of fishnet tights with a lace dress and leather buckled boots for a fetish inspired look that packs just enough (but not too much) raunch factor.

Stars Get Full On Fishnet Fever

jesy-littlemix-fishnets-resizedWe’ve been seeing the signs for a while – a celeb spotting here and there, a press feature every so often.  But over the last month or so, it seems it’s official: fishnets are in again.  Sure, there has been the odd sighting, and perhaps we should have known it was coming – after all we lost count of the amount of times we saw nude fishnet tights in place of sheers over the summer, and stars like Beyoncé and Rihanna have been rocking them on stage for ages.  But it’s only recently that we’ve seen the trend come into full force, with fishnets on the catwalk and – more importantly – on the legs of celebs and everyday women around us.

Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson might be busy taking America by storm, but she still finds time to coordinate some fierce fashion looks.  Her and the other girls are known and loved for their bold fashion choices, so while not all of us will be able to pull off the fishnets-tartan-leather combo, we can take note and incorporate them into our looks.  For a subtler way of flaunting your fishnets and still tapping into the grunge trend, try punky accessories – a tartan bag, leather jacket or studded boots – with a classic tailored shift, or soft cotton jersey dress.

Get Jesy’s Look: The Trasparenze Rita Fishnet Tights have a slightly wider net, just like Jesy’s, and come in a rainbow of shades for those that dare to go beyond classic black.

 

Showing us how to work fishnets and leather and still look elegant, Georgia May Jagger was snapped as she left Claridge’s a couple of weeks ago modelling her own version of the “London look”.  Teaming classic fishnet tights with point heels, leather skirt AND jacket, she finished the look with a colourful silk scarf tied around her neck and smoky eye make up.  We’ll be swapping the leather jacket for a silky cream blouse to avoid overdoing the leather.

Get Georgia’s Look: The Levante Fishnet Tights are made with classic Italian design and come in nude for the summer months, too.

Even the mega A-List is getting in on the action.  Hollywood superstar Julia Roberts was featured on the cover of Vanity Fair’s annual awards season issue.  In a spread shot by Annie Leibovitz, the star was pictured sitting on Idris Elba’s lap (lucky Julia), flanked by 12 Years a Slave’s Chiwetel Ejifor and Hollywood bachelor George Clooney.  Wearing a tux jacket, high heels and – you guessed it – fishnet tights, the Pretty Woman star might have missed out on the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, but she’s definitely a strong contender for Best Dressed Legs.

Get Julia’s Look: We recommend adding some cocktail shorts, but anything with a seam with help you get that Chicago-style glamour – try the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Backseam Tights.

 

As if we needed any more proof of the Return of the Net, it turned up yet again on the LFW AW14 catwalks – notably at Jean Paul Gaultier where nets and lace featured heavily, and at Tom Ford where the models wore fishnet tights with pencil skirts and knee high boots.  We’ll be using the show as our autumn workwear inspiration, and teaming suede pencil skirts with boots, fishnets and soft, luxe long sleeved t-shirts.

Get the Catwalk Look:  A high end looks needs high end accessories – the Falke Net Tights are a great example of classic design from a luxury brand.

So whether you go for wide net, coloured, classic or hold ups, you heard it here first: fishnets are well and truly BACK.

Rihanna loves Fishnets!

levante_fishnetsRihanna is always unapologetic when it comes to her stunning outfit choices, and often they include one of our favourite wardrobe staples ? fishnets! We love how RiRi wears her foxy fishnets with monster levels of style.

On her way to the NYC nightspot, The Marquee, the fashion diva was recently photographed sauntering down the street in an R rated semi-sheer dark blue mini dress, black Louboutin heels and fishnets. And thanks to her (hopefully fake) brown mink coat and fishnets, RiRi was safe from the winter chill. Whilst, they?ll never rival 100 denier opaques for their warmth, fishnets do boast a small insulating factor, especially when woven with a layer of sheers.

Rihanna is not the only girl in the world who could pull off this look, to copy the Barbadian beauty?s style we recommend Levante Fishnet Tights. A classic pair of fishnets with medium size holes, providing you with sultry style. Without any visible reinforcement, you can feel free to flaunt any RiRi style super short hemlines you may desire.

Yet again the Umbrella hit maker brought out her fishnets for a different ensemble. This time matching fishnets with ripped jeans, she showed how it?s possible to combine two punk pieces for a dramatic effect. This look is perfect for those of you who wish to cover up a bit more. If a subtler look is what you?re after, then Jonathan Aston Micronet Tights are ideal. Woven with an additional layer of sheer fabric, these fishnets help to keep you warm during these freezing months.

Love the sexy songstress? style, but prefer the freedom of hold ups? Jonathan Aston Fishnet Hold Ups With Plain Top are chic yet seductive. As an added bonus, fishnets are difficult to snag, so this along with the addition of Lycra, means that you will be able to enjoy wearing these hold ups again and again.

So what now for your hosiery drawer? Let us know which fishnets are your faves.

Jenny From The Block Loves her fishnets!

It was Jennifer Lopez who once told us to ‘not be fooled by the rocks’ that she supposedly has, and on Thursday, that very same pop diva showed us that her rocks have made their way into her hosiery collection too! Taking to the stage at Spain’s answer to the People’s Choice Award, the 43 year old starlet showcased her unusual but oh so fabulous choice of leg wear.Looking far more provocative then previous performances (and we’re not saying that having her ex in the crowd has anything to do with that…), Jennifer proved that whilst fishnets are the foundations of every fabulous stage outfit, a little bit of glitter goes a very long way. Perfect party tights!

Seen on the likes of Iggy Azalea and Katy Pretty, the sequined netted tights have quickly become a rider essential, helping to fake that enviable skin tone whilst keeping pins feeling refreshed and cool. Ideal you’re set to jump around on stage for three hours (bagsy not us!), the good news is that glittery tights will work just as well for slightly less energetic after hour parties and drinks on Friday night.

Making it possible to achieve that starlet style without having to step into a leotard, the Starburst Tights from Jonathan Aston are just the ticket. Gorgeously sheer and available in two colours for double the fun, the 20 denier tights feature a little smattering of sequins that start at the knees and spread outwards. Easier to style than J-Lo’s sparkly fishnets, the elegant tights will instantly add a bit of glamour to that unloved LBD or understated skater skirt. With only limited stock available, be sure to act quick to secure your lust have party sheers!

And if you’re just after the perfect pair of nude fishnets? If you’re not a self confessed glitter fan but still adore the flawless look that nude nets can deliver, may we point you in the direction of the Levante Fishnet Tights. With three shades to choose from (a must for those already contemplating their AW wardrobe), the soft and stretchy tights will help you cheat your way to catwalk worthy pins, disguising blemishes all the while!

Thanks J-Lo!

J-Lo Courts Controversy in Daring BGT Outfit

fishnet-backseam-tightsMuch fuss has been made of our favourite Latino lovely J Lo’s raunchy outfit on Britain’s Got Talent this week.  Teaming a dangerously high cut leotard with thigh high boots, it certainly was a head turning ensemble.  Well, we’re throwing in our tuppence worth and siding with the songstress, who defended her outfit, saying “I wore the same outfit on the Billboard Awards and it didn’t cause any controversy there, so I felt pretty safe”.

If you’ve got it, flaunt it we say.  It’s all about the context – she was performing on stage, not doing the weekly supermarket shop.  And no, a feathered bolero wouldn’t be our first choice of accessory, but to be honest, we were far more concerned with her pins.  Following in the beautifully clad footsteps of Beyoncé, Rihanna et al, the Latino superstar opted for nude fishnet tights to show off her enviable legs.

We’ve discussed before why fishnets are so appealing for celebs on stage – they’re breathable and flattering, and provide a little coverage as well as being super durable.  But, although you probably wouldn’t rock the rest of J-lo’s look in your average 9 to 5, more and more people are opting to swap their sheers for fishnet tights – for all the same reasons.

Team nude fishnets under a summer dress for an alternative to your bare leg look sheers, or swap your work tights for a fine micromesh in black, and you’ll soon see the appeal of the fishnet.  We guarantee you’ll soon wonder how you lived without them!

What do you think of J-Lo’s BGT look?  Do you think it was just too raunchy for a family show, or do you think she rocked it?

How Not To Wear Stockings, By Madonna

Macy's "Material  Girl"  Collection LaunchMadonna’s appearance at the Billboard Awards on Sunday taught us one thing: however rich, famous and successful you might be, there are some looks you can’t work.  The pop icon might have won the award for Top Touring Artist for her hugely successful MDNA tour, but if there was one thing she was never going to win an award for, it was her outfit.

Beyoncé Bans Tour Photos – But Her Pins Always Look Amazing

Beyonce_Glasto2Single Ladies singer Beyoncé has hit the headlines again over her attempt for total image control.  It seems the former Destiny’s child singer is insecure about certain pictures that have emerged, despite being the archetypal pin up girl for bootylicious body confidence.

She first hit the headlines back in February when her publicist was reported as asking website Buzzfeed to remove “unflattering” images of the stars Superbowl performance.  Now the singer has again courted controversy after the Daily Mail reported that she has banned all press photographers from her tour – except for her personal official photographer, who has allegedly been hired to capture her most flattering moments.

It’s hard to disagree when you see the released “approved” pictures.  Photographed in a variety of outfits on tour, the images all have one thing in common – a fabulous looking Beyoncé, with no awkward poses or deranged grimaces.  And as usual, the star is wearing her favourite fishnet tights throughout which make her legs look amazing.
